Top 10 favourite albums of all time. | Vital Football

Top 10 favourite albums of all time.

Go on then , the Radio 2 poll has prompted some discussion and I will consider my top 10 albums. Going to take me a while i think.


Has a high horse
Do you have to own them or could you , say for instance, have heard them round at your mate Kev's place which was a loft extension actually , as he had a job and could buy them and you were doing A levels at the time and couldn't afford them?
I'm sure we can all relate to that scenario eh?

This is all going to come down to age isn't it?

While I appreciate bands like The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and Queen no doubt made some great albums, I've never actually owned one (other than Greatest Hits) or listened to one all the way through, so my personal list is more likely to include bands like Nirvana, The Stone Roses, Oasis and even kasabian, which may seem laughable to some over a certain age......

.. you old bastards!
Well I meant musical albums as the Radio 2 poll prompted this and yes it's down to the era you grew up in etc .

If you liked an album enough for it to be in your top 10 surely you would have bought it ?

I have just spent 10 mins jotting down a few . It's not as easy as you may think.

Well no not really.

I liked the Stones, The Beatles, Queen, Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, in fact I like a lot of music that was before my time, but in this modern age of music downloads I tend to only download 'the hits' rather than full albums.

Got loads of songs from the above on my iPod but none of the full albums.

Anyway my list for what it's worth (in no particular order)

1. Bob Marley - Legend (although isn't that a Greatest Hits, so probably dosn't count?)
2. Oasis - Definately Maybe
3. Oasis - Whats the Story Morning Glory
4. Kasabian - Kasabian
5. The Stone Roses - The Stone Roses
6. Nirvana - Nevermind
7. Terrence Trent D'arby - The Hardline according to Terrence Trent D'arby
8. Michael Jackson - Thriller
9. Arctic Monkeys - Whatever people Say I am thats what I'm not
10. Kings of Leon - Youth and Young Manhood

So I'm assuming in your rules Dennis an artist or band can feature more than once? (unlike in the radio 2 poll) Does that also mean, live albums and greatest hits are allowed?
